Not sure I agree with you there. Pumilio can be successfully reared without UVB, but to say it's a waste of money may be a bit speculative. Some of our initial observations (read anecdotal, unmeasured, and unscientific) indicate some level of UVB may be helpful to some frogs including pumilio. I know our success rate with pumilio froglets improved with some UV supplementation. Again, this is simply anecdotal observation. Of course, you would be absolutely correct if the vivarium has a glass lid that blocks the UV anway.
